Advice on buying new Alfa 159

Greetings to all. I have just joined and am now yet an Alfa Romeo owner.. yet. I am keen on getting an Alfa 159, and was hoping for some advice.

Firstly, I am deciding between a 159 2.2 vs 3.2 V6. I saw there were a couple of previous forums which had discussed this topic, but specifically I would like to ask:

1. How does the Qtronic gearbox of the 3.2 compare with the 2.2 Selespeed gearbox of the 2.2? I have tried the 2.2 Selespeed gearbox and it is kinda "jerky" between gear changes.. is the Qtronic gearbox behave in the same way? I'm not sure about u guys/gals, but I actually do like this "jerky" gear change..

2. How is the 4 wheel drive system of the 3.2? When driving on normal roads (ie not on track), is there any perceptible difference between this 4 wheel drive system vs the front wheel drive system of the 2.2?

3. Does the 2.2 or 3.2 make a better noise? I personally loved the noise that the 2.2 makes, especially with the Rpms climbing and the needle heading for the redline..

That's all for now. Thanks all!
